She has a new blog about crafting, couponing, awesome jewelry, household hints, cooking.... a lot of good stuff. It's called DIYin Dixie.. Go visit and leave her a message,I know she'll appreciate it.

Christmas in July and now August!

Hey girls, Hope everyone is doing great this summer! As I type this I am in the "3rd circle of Hell" as my friend Karen Mixon would say! We are actually at a  great resort in Cathedral City outside Palm Springs, CA and it is way HOT!!!! Like so hot you can't hold onto the stair rails going down the stairs because they will burn your hands! So to feel cooler I thought I'd share some of the cards we did last week at the Christmas in July sneak peak.This is one of my favorites. It's a great Christmas set because you get a good image and saying in one set. This is a new set in the Catalog, called Rejoicing with you, p.21. I did use the music wheel as a background on the Bashful Blue. The angel is embossed with silver embossing powder on Marina Mist cardstock. She is then cute out with paper snips and attached with dimensionals. I love blue  at Christmas. So, if you are roasting start planning Christmas projects to help you get your mind off the HOT!
Got ta go. Go be a blessing to someone today! God bless you!!
